Just returned from a week at this cottage, the location is very peaceful. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Ideal placement for touring the local seaside towns and villages. Will consider this again for a break later in the year. more

Management response:

Great to hear you had a good week and enjoyed the cottage and local area so much. We are pleased you found Grosmont Cottage so well situated for enjoying the peaceful surroundings of stunning Eskdale but only 1 mile from Whitby. I have just received your booking for late September. Many thanks from Paul and Dianne. more

As another reviewer commented the shower does lack power. If i could suggest an improvment it would be to install a powerful aerial... more
